your picture's too wide for 80 column display.

client's                                                                                                    gateway
192.168.2.x <------------------------------------------>  HostAP    <------------------------------------->

                                                     bridge with two IP
                                                in bridge are wlan0 and eth0

Your assignment of IP addresses is 'interesting'.
May I suggest something like this:

client's                                 gateway
.2.x <-------> .2.2 AP .1.2 <----------> .1.1
      wireless     .3.2        wireless
                    |UTP cable
           |       |   |      |
         .3.3    .3.4  ...    ...

No bridging. Plain simple sane subnetting.
You need to turn off AP bridging in hostap
so that each AP<->STA link basically works

Mine does all this and also does www caching, mail and
traffic accounting. So what?
